Camille's Favorite Gear
The rise of Camille Leblanc-Bazinet from teenage gymnast to “Fittest Woman on Earth” would only have surprised those who weren’t paying attention. Since her competitive CrossFit debut back in 2010, Leblanc-Bazinet made a habit of dominating the Canada East Regionals and making waves at the Games, where she picked up three Top 10 finishes in her first four years. It was in 2014, however, that everything came together--as the 5’2” Leblanc-Bazinet showed off her much improved weightlifting prowess en route to her first Reebok CrossFit Games title.
Even while simultaneously working toward a degree in Chemical Engineering, the former balance beamer dedicated herself so much to the art of the barbell that she took on the additional goal of representing her native Canada in Women’s Weightlifting at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.
Leblanc-Bazinet is part of a spirited, athletic family. She has three siblings with competitive CrossFit experience, as well as her husband--CrossFit coach and trainer Dave Lipson. After moving to Boulder, CO, in 2015, Camille made her debut in the South Regional with familiar results: a First Place finish.
